Now you have a temporarily beefed up tie rod. It should work well enough to get you off the trail, and maybe, just maybe, down the road to home. Once back in civilization, you need to replace the tie rod with something more substantial. You can either add a custom steering system (we like the Currie Enterprises Currectlync) or get a new factory tie rod and sleeve it like we did in “Jeep Wrangler Destructive Testing,” (Oct ’12).
